The ol' Revert and Switch

Posted June 23rd, 2009 at 3:46 PM by Gerri Shin

If you read my blogs, you will remember a previous entry which detailed my upgrade to the near final beta of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Well after using that for a few weeks, I decided that it would probably be better for me to downgrade back to leopard until the actual final release is out. While I never once experienced a crash, I simply felt that it would be better to run a fully tested and proven OS. So anyway I've spent the last 5 hours getting everything set up from backing up and re-installing leopard to re-customizing my icons.
overall the bulk of the time was simply downloading programs such as skype, Adium, Appcleaner and the customizations.

Unfortunately, an unforeseen disaster occurred during this whole ordeal. It seems that My MSN account, no longer recognizes my password, so rather than spend the time now to deal with it, I have simply set up a new account in the meantime. I do think I'll most likely use this account from now on though. There are many from the MSN convos that know my new name, Im still as wary about those dang spambots who try to com onto me through the chat so I still won't post up m name here.

    what's to be sorry for Lucy? I planned the downgrade. the only things that have gone awry this time are that I forgot to save my Warcraft 3 saves and I don't have access to my oldest msn account. not really all that much is lost.

    I'm actually surprised myself that those are the only things that got messed up.

    Ah okay. You want a downgrade, I see now. I guess I didn't see the word "downgrade". Now if it happened without you knowing, then it could be trouble. At least you didn't lose a lot. That is good.
